Three types of Disclosure: Basic, Standard and Enhanced are available under the Police Act Disclosure Scheme.  Applications Forms and Guidance Notes are available from First Standard, who will guide you through the process

The PVG Scheme replaces Enhanced Disclosures for those working in Regulated positions.  Those working with children and vulnerable groups will be required to register using the new PVG Scheme Application Form available from First Standard.  The Scheme, which is the result of the adoption of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007 will provide for a continual monitoring of those deemed suitable to work in such positions,  Under the Act, employers are obliged to inform Disclosure Scotland or the Independent Safeguardiong Authority of any behaviour which gives cause for concern.
